Product Overview
External docking stations are popular because of its flexibility and compatibility. However, because it is for external use, the interface limits the transfer speed of your hard drive while only allowing one to be use at a time. In a standard computer case, there are several 5.25” bays usually reserved for your DVD ROM drive, however, will not naturally fit with your 2.5” or 3.5” hard drives without some assistance. We also want to create a much faster and smoother transition from external to internal setups. Using the MB971SP-B DuoSwap, you will save precious desktop space by integrating both 3.5” & 2.5” slots into a single 5.25” bay. This gives you the ability to expand and easily go from your external docking station to your computer in just seconds.

Having a way to easily exchange between the two industry standard SATA hard drive sizes is difficult to find. The DuoSwap changes all of this as it is a 5.25” hot swappable drive caddy for 2.5” & 3.5” SATA hard drive or SSD. The MB971SP-B has the most flexibility within a single 5.25” device bay allowing different hard drive combinations, featuring the ability to fit a single 2.5”, 3.5” or even both hard drives at the same time to produce the maximum storage capability. Inserting two drives into the DuoSwap gives you many benefits. With two drives inserted you can easily make backups of your 2.5” to your 3.5” drive or cloning your 3.5” to your 2.5” drive via SATA speed. This makes DuoSwap a perfect tool for upgrading from 3.5” SATA hard disk drive to 2.5” SATA solid state drive. You can also take advantage of your extra 2.5” and 3.5” drives you have by inserting them quickly and easily into the DuoSwap system. This saves you time and money because of the MB971SP-B tool-less hot-swap design.

The MB971SP-B is perfect as a quick setup accessory for your system as you can have your operating system in the smaller bay with the SSD and your main secondary storage in the bigger bay with high capacity 3.5” hard drives. Our fast and simple hot-swap system on the MB971SP-B provides easy access to your hard drive(s) and SSD. Then to ensure and prevent that dust does not enter into the computer system, a two part flexible anti-dust cover is integrated to help protect by closing when a 2.5” HDD/SSD is in use. The MB971SP-B also makes hard drive maintenance and monitoring easy because of the DuoSwap system utilizing individual hard drive LED’s, power and eject buttons. With two individual power buttons it allows you to power down each drive when not in use to save energy and extend your drives lifespan. The DuoSwap also uses two standard SATA connectors for drive data and a single power to help prevent compatibility issues. Moreover, for additional drive security, we designed an “Eagle-Hook” mechanism for MB971SP-B. It switches on immediately the 3.5” drive inserted and locks the 3.5” hard drive in place. So the 3.5” hard drive won’t fall out when you move the PC around.

The DuoSwap MB971SP-B works similar to other popular external docking stations however, packed with more features such as individual LED’s, power button and eject button. Most importantly, it allows the user to be able to access both 2.5” & 3.5” SATA HDD or SSD concurrently. Having an easy way to use your hard drives as they should be used, without the worry of installing or removing makes it a must have accessory for any personal PC, Lab testing PC or HDD duplication system.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by just the job easy to fit and just works in my microserver as intended !! 15 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works well The only down side to this device is that the eject lever for the 2.5" HDD only works with the older 9mm drives, the newer drives are 7mm and the eject lever misses the drive completely. If fitted, the 3.5" HDD needs to be ejected to take out the 2.5"HDD, as this leaves room for you to get your hand in to ease out the drive. An easy fix is to use a flat ribbon around the drive, this allows the 2.5" HDD to be eased out. 02 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well, but note SSD's wont work with the eject button I am using this device so I can swap between operating systems easily. It works well for this, plugging it in as the first SATA connection on the motherboard. Overall it feels sturdy and not liable to break from use. One thing to note, if you are using it with a SSD the eject button will not work. It appears the height of a SSD is too low to be caught by the eject mechanism. However if the 3.5" slot is not in use, you can slide a SSD in and out with your hand fairly easily. 02 August 2013
